Pavements Design

Status of Pavement Design in the US (2003)

FHWA considers implementation of mechanistic-empirical pavement design a critical element in improving the National Highway System. To help move the implementation forward, FHWA intends to provide significant support for these efforts. To kick start this endeavor, the Design Guide Implementation Team (DGIT) worked with the FHWA division office materials and pavement engineers to complete a questionnaire for State highway agencies on the current status of pavement design. The questionnaire consisted of seven short questions pertaining to planned or current activities related to implementation of mechanistic-empirical design. Forty-eight State division offices and the District of Columbia responded to the questionnaire.
